2014 Run for Blood

  • Red Cross Twin Cities Run for Blood

There is an excellent chance that you or a loved one will need a blood transfusion in your lifetime, and there is no alternative to blood transfusions for accident victims, women giving birth, cancer patients, people undergoing surgery and children with blood disorders.

This July, you can help the American Red Cross North Central Blood Services deliver lifesaving blood to those in need by participating in the 6th Annual 2014 Run for Blood 5K, Quarter Marathon and Community Blood Drive.

Whether you lace up your running shoes, help raise funds, or donate blood, you can do your part to make certain the American Red Cross has the resources it needs to provide nearly 40% of blood and blood products used in our country.

Race Starts 8:00 am
Blood Donation Service 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
